A couple of things to keep in mind regarding Dan Bice's story concerning coming charges against people who worked for Scott Walker.
First, these "sources" are probably breaking the law by talking to Bice. John Doe proceediings operate under orders of nondisclosure directed ti witnesses and lawyers. In other words, anyone in a position to know these things is under a duty not to disclose them. While you can imagine more benign explanations, Bice's sources are either speculating or violating their legal obligations. Whether or not the former are wrong or the latter lack credibility, only time will tell.
In the meantime, if John Chisolm is not beside himself, he should be. If these "sources" truly know what they clain to know, it is highly likely that they are in his office.
Second, assuming that the charges here are a variation on the "caucus scandal' cases invovling Republicans like Scott Jensen and Steve Foti or Democrat Chuck Chvala and Brian Burke, the legal validity of those charges is uncertain. In other words, it is not clear that doing political work from government offices is a crime.
Indeed, in the Chvala and Jensen cases, the Wisconsin Supreme Court split 2-2 on whether the prosecutions could go forward. The political activities in question were clearly contrary to the legislature's rules (although not its bipartisan conduct), but the Justices split on whether it could be criminally prosecuted. Justices Wilcox, Prosser and Butler did not participate. Justices Crooks and Roggensack apparently would have found that the prosecutions were unconstitutional for due process, fair notice and vagueness concerns. Chief Justice Abrahamsons and Justice Bradley would have allowed them to go forward.Because the court of appeals had held for the state, the decision below remained standing and both prosecutions went forward.
Of course, we don't know what will be charged (or if it will be charged) but, even when we do, we may not know whether it's really a crime.
